Now, in a rare interview with Star Sports, Kohli shared how Anushka has been part of some of the most crucial moments in the life of the Indian captain.

“I was in Mohali and there was a Test series going on. I was with Anushka then, she had come to visit me. Surprisingly, when I became the Test captain then also she was in Melbourne with me. That was a very special moment we shared together,” said Kohli.

Kohli was talking about the moment during the India-England Test in Mohali in November when he was informed that he will takeover as India’s limited-overs captaincy from MS Dhoni.

The Delhi cricketer also shared that the news made him extremely nostalgic about his cricketing journey and that he was happy to share the moment with Anushka. 

“During the Mohali Test, they had spoken to me already. When I hung up the phone and told her, for me it was like a flashback. From the moment I started playing in my academy till the Mohali game. I was emotional. I was in tears because I had never thought that I will see this day.”

“What was more beautiful was that I was able to share it with Anushka. It is something that I will always remember,” Kohli added.
